Nosferatu is one of the silent era’s masterpieces. Its eerie, Gothic feel - and chilling performance from Max Shrek as the vampire - set the template for horror films that followed. Darkly humorous and tender too - this is a story of yearning and the search for fulfilment.
Minima are a Bristol-based four-piece group who have specialised in live accompaniment to screenings of silent films since 2006. Their instrumentation includes cello, double bass, guitars, dulcimer, synthesizer and drum kit, creating an uncompromising and unique live sound. This new reworking of their own acclaimed original score to Nosferatu follows Hutter on his journey to Transylvania and back, plunging the audience into an awaiting nightmare.
“Minima's spine-tingling music clung to each twist of the movie... spellbinding accompaniment.” (The Guardian)
“A superbly sinister live score by the soundtrack group Minima.” (Financial Times)
“The atmosphere was absolutely magical… hundreds of people seemed utterly spellbound.” (East End Film Festival)
“One of the spring’s coolest events… Minima capture the film’s disturbing mood perfectly.” (Daily Telegraph)
